NVIC Issues Guide for Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has released a document called "Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law: A Guide" to help consumers retain their rights of freedom of choice. 

The NVIC is a non-profit organization with the stated mission: "The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is dedicated to the prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to defending the informed consent ethic in medicine. As an independent clearinghouse for information on diseases and vaccines, NVIC does not advocate for or against the use of vaccines. We support the availability of all preventive health care options, including vaccines, and the right of consumers to make educated, voluntary health care choices."

Many chiropractors are members of the NVIC and support the issue of freedom of choice in healthcare. The ICA includes a freedom of choice statement in their policies:
The doctor of chiropractic shall recognize the right of the patient to select his/her own method of health care. The doctor of chiropractic shall also respect the patient's right to change his/her choice of providers at will. This may be separate, concomitant or complementary to chiropractic care where cooperation with another provider may be required and concurrent procedures do not conflict.  The doctor of chiropractic should ensure that patients possess enough information to enable the patient to make an informed intelligent decision with regard to any proposed chiropractic care

The following is directly from the NVIC website:

"Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law: A Guide is an illustrated 55-page guide published in 2014 by the non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) that gives an overview of why vaccine safety and informed consent protections should be secured in all U.S. vaccine policies and laws. Authored by NVIC co-founder and president Barbara Loe Fisher, the guide is anchored online with more than 240 references and explains in clear language why we should all be concerned about the erosion of parental, civil and human rights when it comes to vaccine mandates that affect our right to:
  • get an education;
  • hold a job;
  • receive health insurance and medical care;
  • enter a hospital or nursing home; and
  • function in society.
At a time when doctors and politically powerful special interest groups associated with private drug companies and medical trade associations have joined with government health officials and are lobbying state legislators to eliminate or severely restrict the legal right to exercise informed consent to vaccine risk-taking, this fully referenced guide provides valuable information to concerned families, health care professionals, legislators, community leaders and the general public."

Informed Patients Make Better Practice Members

Imagine if your patients knew as much about the benefits of chiropractic as you did.   Imagine if they had access to over a thousand articles and studies that cover almost every subject they could ask in a chiropractic office. Imagine if you had a way to easily get this information to your patients.

What would be the results of this?

  • More compliance with care
  • Fewer missed appointments
  • More family participation
  • More referrals
  • Less symptom oriented
  • More patients under wellness care
  • More excited and grateful patients
  • Pay for care care more readily

The good news is that your patients do have access to this type of information. As a subscriber to NYK services, you have access to the information, and the means to easily get it out to your patients.  Click on the image above and view the video at the top of the page to learn the real purpose of a chiropractic website.
